Timelines of Policy Actions and Communications

The links below contain timelines of the Federal Reserve's key monetary policy actions and communications since the eve of the Global Financial Crisis and Great Recession. The dates in these timelines correspond to the days on which the public was informed of an action or a decision. For example, if the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) discussed a policy communication at a monetary policy meeting and conveyed the substance of its discussions to the public through its meeting minutes, then the timeline would report the day on which the FOMC minutes were released.
